Hailing from Suunto s MC range of mirror compasses, the MCA-D is an invaluable tool for people who value highly accurate and reliable directional measurements, such as surveyors, miners, architects, rescue patrols, hikers, boaters, and the military. The MCA-D boasts a fixed declination adjustment system--standard throughout the range--that s especially useful when working in areas with large magnetic variation. The tool s sighting notch, meanwhile, ensures superior accuracy, as does the jewel bearing. Add in a mirrored lid that locks open at 60-, 120-, and 180-degree angles and you have a versatile, practical compass for a variety of navigational applications.

The MCA-D employs Suunto s two-zone system to achieve precise, accurate readings regardless of location. Previously, most compasses functioned well in only one of five geographic zones. That s because the compasses were balanced differently based on the zone s inclination, i.e., the vertical intensity and direction of the Earth s magnetic field. However, as people began to travel more, it became clear that globe-hopping adventurers needed compasses with a greater geographical range. Suunto s two-zone system, by contrast, considers only the northern and southern hemispheres. In practice, this means that a Suunto compass designed for the northern hemisphere--as the MCA-D is--will still work for a fair distance into the southern hemisphere and vice-versa. Suunto is one of only two compass manufacturers to offer two-zone compasses.

The MCA-D, which also sports a patent-pending snap-lock that detaches easily from the lanyard, measures 2.2 by 0.6 by 3.3 inches (W x H x D) with the lid closed and weighs a mere 1.5 ounces. It s also backed by a lifetime warranty.
